Common questions about being a Dishwasher

What should I wear to a dishwasher job interview?

It is best to treat an interview for a dishwasher job the same as an interview for any other job. Ideally, you will wear a wrinkle-free shirt, tie and dress slacks. However, a clean polo shirt and ironed khakis are usually acceptable. Unless you are told you may dress more casually, always dress your best.

Do dishwashers receive tips?

Dishwashers don't normally receive tips since they spend their time in the kitchen and don't serve customers directly. It is possible you might be tipped if your duties include bussing tables. Some restaurants have a "tipping out" policy. This encourages servers to share a percentage of their tip money with the kitchen staff, including the dishwashers.
